Faith Says Yes

Faith Says Yes

And when He had come into the house, the blind men came to Him. And Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this? They said to Him, Yes, Lord” (Matthew 9:28 NKJV). Two blind men came to Jesus for mercy. They wanted their healing. They wanted to see. Jesus didn’t tell them they were sinners, and He didn’t heal sinners. He didn’t ask anything about what synagogue they attended. He didn’t ask if they had been perfectly keeping the law. No nothing like that. Jesus simply asked them whether they could believe that He could heal them. It’s the simple gospel. Do you believe? We receive by grace through faith. We receive by grace through believing. Jesus simple asked if they believed—were they believers. They gave Jesus the answer He wanted to hear—yes. So Jesus healed them according to their faith which was simply saying yes to Jesus. Whatever we need, Jesus asks, do you believe I can do this? Faith says yes.
